I could not believe how light it is when I got it in the mail. It is lighter and smaller than my rain gear even! A tiny little package when it is deflated that fits in my backpack perfect, and you don't even know it's packed it is so light weight! I had to try it out as soon as it arrived, and one of the reviews that I read was a 400 lb person saying that it keeps them off the ground comfortably. I am 160lbs and it keeps me off the ground when my weight is evenly distributed (like when I am lying down), but I definitely hit the ground when my weight is pinpointed in one area (ie sitting on it). That being said, I bought it to lie on, not sit on, and I slept like a baby all night. I never even had a thought in the night that I was even on a pad instead of a bed. I would take it over a self inflating thermarest pad anyday- my hips feel like I am lying on cardboard when I use a thermarest, but this pad was airier and cushioned my hips like a cloud. I am using it for backpacking, and I have recommended it to a friend who travels to China every year where the beds are actual wood boards. She needs something tiny to take with her to cushion the beds there. This pad is where it is at!
This sleeping pad inflated much quicker than some of the other inflatable pads i've tried in the past. Overall for a pad in this price range it's a great value. The only downside is that it doesn't pack down quite as small as some. This pad is perfect for someone new to backpacking.
